You might be thinking of the X-Card by John Stavropoulos. The short version is that you give your players index cards marked with a big X. These are a clear and non-verbal (so as not to interrupt the flow of play) way to signal to the GM and/or the other players that whatever is happening right now is making that player uncomfortable. This applies to any ...

The Demesne, Hearthstone and Manse merits are all intrinsically linked and the rules regarding them are spread between the three. Every Hearthstone came from a Demesne, Though it is considerably rarer for a demesne to do so naturally without a Manse built on it. The stronger the Hearthstone, the stronger the Demesne it came from. The Hearthstone Merit on it'...

My reading is that it's labelled as Permanent because it applies a permanent modification to the Form charm. That is, the charm itself doesn't have a separate activation, it only changes the form charm to make the extra abilities available if you pay the extra cost when activating that. So, the effect is tied to the Form charm – scene-long, 10m to activate ...

You suffer a -1 Penalty to attacks with the Off-Hand Locating this was not straight forward because the information was not where I would have expected it to be. But, I don't have the final release version of the rulebook with me; I put this together from the In-Dev version that I do have with me. So, the final version of the Exalted 3 rulebook may have ...

With the listed charms the handy http://wiseartificersinsight.com/ tells us that a single (terminus 1) difficulty 5 roll will result in the following results over a milllion tests: Mean threshold successes per attempt: μ = 58.52 Standard Deviation of threshold successes per ...

I asked this question on the Onyx Path Forum and got a response from Robert Vance, one of the Developers on Exalted. "If you don't take the Merit, Martial Arts would be an exception to the rule that you have to put a dot in it at character creation." source

It's a little difficult to say, as Ex3 is still in it's early stages and all of the splatbooks released so far have been focused on the mechanics of the game, not the setting. There are a few things I can think of off the top of my head though. There will be new types and new factions of Exalted, though details are still sparse. Liminal Exalted: think ...

The top end of these crafts is similarly different... Architecture does have some more farmable options. Practicing Architecture doesn't mean you need to actually build the thing...just design it. You could design small houses for people...or doghouses, or stables, and so on. In this case, you're just coming up with and drawing a blueprint...pretty easy ...

Caution: There aren't really rules for Artifact or Charm design in EX3 right now, so everything you read below is based on my practice for homebrewing them. I also expect that the upcoming supplement Arms of the Chosen will flesh out this system much more, and may invalidate what I've laid out here. Let's see at what Artifacts published in EX3 actually look ...
